Finding Fiction : Home


Welcome to the Find Fiction Libguide.  This page will aid your search for novels and short story collections. 

The CCM librarary catalogs all items under the Library of Congress Call Number system, which does not have a separate section for fiction.  In the LC system, fiction is integrated with all literature, including literary criticism, poetry and plays.  By following the steps in this guide, you will be able to find the fiction  in our collection. If you are interested in a specific title that we do not own, you may place a free interlibrary loan order.

Overview of the guide:

The CCM Fiction Lists By Genre tab contains links to various genre novels and stories currently owned by the library.

The Find Books Similar to a Favorite Title tab introduces the New Jersey State Library's "Novelist" database, a reader's advisory tool that can help you find new titles that are similar to one you enjoyed.

The Find a Book at CCM Library tab demonstrates a search in the library catalog for a specific title. It also guides the steps to place an interlibrary loan order for a book we do not own.

The Find a Book in a Public Library tab demonstrates how to search "M.A.I.N.", the Morris County public library system's union catalog.  Morris County residents may place a request to ship any M.A.I.N. title to their home library.
